Today 48 years ago, I found the Metropolitan Community Churches and started on my journey also as a GLBTQ activists. Someone asked me not long ago “how does it feel for you after living to see so much history.” I tell them, how thankful I am that God called me to make a difference and hopefully, help change the lives of the LGBT community for the better. After God told me that I was loved and said, “Troy, I don’t have have step son’s and daughters,” I have never looked back and have tried to live out my life as a happy, healthy, whole member of this world community.
To my American friends, next month we hold one of the most important elections for president of our country that I’ve ever seen.
Years ago when I was the moderator of the MCC, I always stated that “I can not tell you who to vote for, but absolutely I can tell you NOT to vote for!”
I will not be voting for anyone who is a homophobic, misogynist, nationalistic, anti-people who are differently able,or is islamphobic. We don’t need a President of this country who would break the laws of God found in Isaiah 10.
1 Woe to those who make unjust laws,
to those who issue oppressive decrees,
2 to deprive the poor of their rights
and withhold justice from the oppressed of my people,
making widows their prey
and robbing the fatherless.
And neither should you accept someone like that.
